On April 10th, Jon A. Huber, co-founder of Crowned Heads, announced The Angel’s Anvil exclusive TAA (Tobacconists’ Association of America) edition for the current year. Founded in 1968, the TAA traditionally provides retailers with the tools and opportunities to optimize their business in the tobacco world, but commercialized in the so-called ‘brick and mortar’ stores. The cigars will be made at Tabacalera La Alianza S.A. owned by an icon of the cigar industry: Ernesto Perez-Carillo Jr .; the blend includes Nicaraguan tobaccos in binder filler, while the wrapper will be an Ecuadorian Sumatra. The chosen size, 52 x 140mm, has been given the name ‘Genios’.
Jon A. Huber said last Tuesday: ” We have different ties with the Dominican Republic and, for the fifth exclusive TAA edition, it was our intention to create something unique and new by paying homage to this country.
